Śrī Rāma crosses the ocean with the whole army and encamps on Mount Suvela; Rāvaṇa feels agitated at the news
sētubaṃdha bhai bhīra ati kapi nabha paṃtha uḍaāhiṃ.
apara jalacaranhi ūpara caḍhai caḍhai pārahi jāhiṃ..4.. [6-4]
The bridge being overcrowded, some of the monkeys flew through the air; while others crossed over treading on the backs of sea monsters.
asa kautuka bilōki dvau bhāī. bihaomsi calē kṛpāla raghurāī..
sēna sahita utarē raghubīrā. kahi na jāi kapi jūthapa bhīrā.. [6-4-1]
siṃdhu pāra prabhu ḍērā kīnhā. sakala kapinha kahu āyasu dīnhā..
khāhu jāi phala mūla suhāē. sunata bhālu kapi jahaom tahaom dhāē.. [6-4-2]
saba taru pharē rāma hita lāgī. ritu aru kuritu kāla gati tyāgī..
khāhiṃ madhura phala baṭapa halāvahiṃ. laṃkā sanmukha sikhara calāvahiṃ.. [6-4-3]
jahaom kahu phirata nisācara pāvahiṃ. ghēri sakala bahu nāca nacāvahiṃ..
dasananhi kāṭi nāsikā kānā. kahi prabhu sujasu dēhiṃ taba jānā.. [6-4-4]
jinha kara nāsā kāna nipātā. tinha rāvanahi kahī saba bātā..
sunata śravana bāridhi baṃdhānā. dasa mukha bōli uṭhā akulānā.. [6-4-5]
